“In my years of affiliation with the World Press Institute, I have seen no other institution which has done the job they have in introducing talented young foreign journalists to the complexities of the American way of life.
Year after year, journalists from all parts of the world have had an unequaled opportunity to see the American system at work, often to report on major U.S. developments, crises in foreign policy, presidential elections, even national tragedies and disaster.
Each year WPI fellows have traveled the length and breadth of the United States…They have returned to their own countries filled with pragmatic expertise and a background for understanding both the U.S., and their own countries in a way they never were able to do before.”
